Turbo up pipe

Afternoon
Have a replacement up-pipe to fit on my 97 wagon: have got all gaskets bolts etc. Couple of things:
1. Is it lengthy/difficult to fit? Subaru dealer reckoned 2 and a half hours book time

2. Is it necessary to remove turbo to fit or can it be done without taking turbo off?

Any help much appreciated

Re: Turbo up pipe

its a PITA fella, more time consuming then anything but its not impossible to do at home if your handy with spanners and a trolly jack.
